I was at first hesitant to attend Indiana University because of the number of students that go here from my high school. However, it's large enough that you can make it your own and find your own niche within the school. I am in the Kelley School of Business, and I love walking into Hodge Hall every day. The atmosphere is so professional, and it's inspiring to be in classes with motivated students and professors that are so knowledgeable and experienced in their field. As for the social aspect of IU, you have the option to party every night or stay in and have a quiet weekend. The tailgates are really fun, and there is a sense of safety on campus, and even off-campus as well. IU has so much to offer, so it can be the right school for anyone.

It seems like this university is trying to trip you up at every step, and every time you trip it costs a ridiculous amount of money. I feel mild panic on a semi-regular basis that I will not be able to afford my bills. While most students tend to focus more on partying, I focus on my schoolwork and on employment, and, as a result, have not made many friends and have had no experiences that fit into the "college is the best time of your life" cliche. This school cares far more about its athletes than it cares about its academically oriented students. Students with C- averages get full rides because they can throw a ball, but a student with a 4.0 has to work twenty hours a week on top of taking nineteen credit hours just to be able to eat. I really look forward to graduation, not because this school has given me anything close to a bright outlook on my future, but because every second I am at this place is miserable.

I love Indiana University. It can be everything you have ever dreamed as well as daunting. Indiana University, much like life, is what you make it.
